The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are eager for Jose Mourinho to take his team to the next level. They’ve witnessed a sustained period of progression under the Portuguese, but the journey is far from over.
Indeed, if the Red Devils are to return to the top of the Premier League, it’s clear that Mourinho still has a big task on his hands. They’re firmly behind Man City, whilst the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham are impressing too.
Ensuring that he has a top-quality squad at his disposal, then, is a priority for the Man Utd board, and whilst bringing new players in is important, retaining the current group’s most important individuals serves an equally significant purpose.
The Spanish goalkeeper has been a mainstay under Jose Mourinho this season, offering impressive, consistent and – at times – unstoppable shot-stopping.
This offer would put him amongst Europe’s highest earners, and it’s tough to argue that he doesn’t deserve that sort of acclaim.
De Gea has made 26 Premier League appearances this term.
De Gea is undroppable for Jose Mourinho. He is truly one of Europe’s best goalkeepers, and losing him would be nothing short of a disaster.
If the Red Devils are to return to the top of the European pile, the team must be built around the 27-year-old.
A new deal makes perfect sense for all involved.
